Hamish Hamilton, London, 1987. First edition. Book condition: good. Virtually free of shelf wear, clean and unmarked though the paper is a little tanned. Dust jacket condition: very good. Unclipped and with only very slight wear around the edges. Susan Hill's earliest memories are of books and reading. The Lighting of the Lamps is suffused with her great love of books. She writes illuminatingly on famous authors - Hardy, Bunyon, Beatrix Potter, Dickens, Buchan, Wodehouse, Blyton - the range is wide and includes authors no longer popular like H. M. Tomlinson. This is a book of enthusiasms, a marvellous collection which conveys so well Susan Hill's deep and lifelong involvement with words, of which she is herself so clearly such a master.
